IC195403:31.6-51 55Galaxy12.0p3.6'x1.9'40MLYJanuary 11 2007Belanglo 250mm f5.6 Dobsonian13.8mmSWASurprisingly bright. Large nucleus brighter than the extremities but no strikingly so. Arc of stars lies W. Very nice.
IC197003:36-43 57Galaxy12.566MLYFebruary 24 2012Belanglo 250mm f5.6 Dobsonian9mmNaglerLong and thin.
IC203504:09.0-45 31Galaxy12.0p1.3'x1.0'55MLYJanuary 11 2007Belanglo 250mm f5.6 Dobsonian32mmSWA/6mmSWABright, but its round shape and small size make it hard to pick at low power. where it's not quite stellar. Sits at a right angle corner with 2 stars forming a 3,4.5 right-angled triangle. at higher power it does take on the appearance of a galaxy with a brighter inner region.
NGC124903:10.1-53 21Galaxy11.55.2'x2.7'36MLYJanuary 18 2007Lostock 250mm f5.6 Dobsonian13.8mmSWALarge and fairly bright and oval.
